This sounds like news that could use some more highlighting. I suspect after the argument I had last night that I’ll need to memorize this one. Just like people overseas, people here also think that the President runs everything and can fix everything, if only he weren’t a “bonehead” or worse. I don’t believe for a minute that the response of the federal govt was/is picture perfect…how can it be? We’re always learning and this (perfect storm) has not happened here before. But you can not in good conscience blame this disaster on President Bush and leave it at that. I hope that at least in all of this, that fiction goes by the wayside.
